Leeds exodus: Fourth Monk mainstay in days agrees to quit Elland Road
By Harry Sykes
Rob Green has become the fourth senior player to quit Leeds United in a matter of days as the club’s dizzying overhaul continued on Sunday.
The Yorkshire giants announced on their official Twitter account and website that the goalkeeper, 37, had terminated his contract with the club just over a year after signing on a free transfer.

It was then announced that Green has joined Premier League new boys Huddersfield after agreeing the terms of a one-year deal.
The 37-year-old was omitted from the Leeds squad for their Saturday evening clash against Nottingham Forest, making way in the matchday 18 for youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who provided cover for first choice Felix Wiedwald.
Huddersfield have snapped up Green after he was an ever-present in the Championship under former manager Garry Monk last season.

The experienced Green, who represented England at the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa, has played more than 600 league games during his career for Norwich, West Ham and Queens Park Rangers.
Green has become the fourth senior Leeds player to leave this week, following Chris Wood, Liam Bridcutt and Souleymane Doukara.
Each of the quartet were key first team players under Monk but have been allowed to leave, with Wood joining Burnley for £15million, Bridcutt transferring to Nottingham Forest and Doukara linking up with Turkish club Osmanlispor.
In other Leeds United transfer news, an £8million bid has been rejected for a Championship goal machine wanted by the club.
